Welcome to TRAUMA.ORG's trauma moulage
scenarios. A moulage is a practice scenario, where you have a
patient to assess and manage appropriately. These moulages were
the first on the internet and more are planned for the future.
The moulages require you to be using
Netscape Navigator 2.0+, Internet Explorer 3.01+ or another internet
Though they should work in most screen modes, they are optimised
for 800x600 with font size set to small. We hope you enjoy the
simulators, and will let us know of any problems or suggestions.
If you are a regular user of Trauma.Org's
Interactive Scenarios, please consider making a donation to Trauma.Org
to support our activities and allow us to bring you new interactive
trauma and critical care moulages, as well as supporting our other
trauma and critical care activities. For more information on Trauma.Org's

The first moulage on the Internet!: In this
moulage you are an emergency room doctor and must assess and adequately
treat an injured patient. You have an assistant to help you, but
they can be of variable help, as in real life. Remember the basic
principles of trauma resuscitation and you won't go far wrong.
Having finished with the last patient, you
head up to the helipad to escape from the ER for a while. Things
never go as planned however and 5 minutes later you are on a motorway
15 miles away. This is a prehospital scenario, but the principles
of trauma management still hold, perhaps more so. You have an experienced
paramedic to help you, and all the kit you might need.
Suddenly and inexplicably transferred to
the spinal service, you have to assess and evaluate six patients
with potential cervical spine injuries.
Transferred back to the ER after generating
too much work for the hospital's lawyers on the spinal service,
you have to manage a child injured in a motor vehicle accident.
The child's parameters and response to your treatment will change
with each run through - and you'll get a full appraisal of your
performance at the end of the moulage.
The Neurotrauma Moulage demonstrates the principles behind the care
of the head injured patient. Using a mathematical model to approximate
brain neurophysiology it is able to simulate a wide range of conditions
that affect brain injury management, both in hte emergency room
and on intensive care
